    And I'm going to start sewing my badges on my framebag à la @cgg.

    Edit: patches! yes.

    I thought my post would instigate some audax memento hoarding confessions! I think I'll be sad if I don't have an ill-fitting, boil in the bag jersey to take home.

    ha! Me too but I haven't put in my final number yet as I'm in two minds about what jersey size to buy. Initially, I thought that was really naff but now I want a memento. The numb toes and tingling fingers will only remind me of the experience for a month or so.... a jersey will hang in my wardrobe forever.

    I need to persuade my cockapoo to sit in my Rando bag. 13kg of dog strapped to your back can't be comfy for either party. I'm not far away from converting front end into a dog carrying machine.

    Even when it’s freezing cold?

    I did Marvellous Medway last weekend and had one sit down meal which was an extravagance. The rest was garages and coops and it was fine because it wasn’t raining or freezing. There is only so much self flagellation I’m willing to put myself through. I’m definitely there for the ride though.

    It was so nice doing a fully catered event with warm shelter at the controls. Taking your shoes off and being able to get warm was amazing. I thought I was carrying too much stuff but I used just about all of my kit including the spare cleat. I was able to get through controls pretty quickly on day 1 but I didn't rush on day 2, mainly because I was knackered and soaking wet.

    Motivational text messages from @youramericanlover and @amey direct to my wahoo was a treat and got me through the Cotswold section. I also got an enthusiastic thumbs up for a passing motorcyclist who saw me grinding up the final part of Dover Hill. My knees are very tender today.

    SR done. PBP here I come.

    I can vouch for the combo. I don’t bother with a carbon fork-no need.

    Me too. I feel similarly.. did I make a mistake taking the later slot? I might be really glad of the extra sleep the night before. The 400 I did started at 9am and it was great to start an audax without the first 3 hours trying to warm up and get my body started. Time will tell, I suppose.
